Publisher's Description

A picture book retelling of C. S. Lewis's classic story, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, for the youngest fans! Introduce them to the magic of Narnia with this picture book featuring illustrations by Tudor Humphries.

Now younger children can share the magical experience, entering into a world of enchantment that will forever lure them back. Four adventurous siblings step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter—but never Christmas—cursed by the power of the White Witch. Only Aslan, the Great Lion, can reverse her wicked spell.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe can also be read as a novel. It is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years.

Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Tudor Humphries trained first as a theatre designer before going on to work as a children's book illustrator, landscape painter, wildlife artist, photographer, sculptor, and teacher. He has brought his lyrical style of artwork to many books and feels a particular affinity for Puddleglum the Marsh-wiggle: "When I found out C.S. Lewis based him on his gardener, it all made sense to me." Tudor's artwork brings the landscape and characters of Narnia gloriously to life.

    Of course this book should not replace the reading of the actual novel, but what a bonus it is to have extra pictures (beautiful ones!) to show my 7 year old, as I read her the full version of the story. and she can read this one to herself, which is wonderful for her. But for me, it really is nice for her to have the larger, color illustrations to look at as I read the original version of the story to her. I am very happy with this purchase & I do recommend it to anyone with a young child getting into the world of Narnia.

    and once again, ChristianBook shipped this out super fast at no extra cost. Very pleased with the service of this website

    This is a simpler version for young children that seems to stay true to the meaning and intent of C.S. Lewis. My 4 year-old daughter loved it and she loved the illustrations.

    Before you order this book, there is one particular line in this version that you should be aware of. My daughter loves this story, and I cherish teaching her how Aslan symbolizes Jesus, our Savior who died for us. But the author of this particular book chose a disappointing and inaccurate portrayal of the powerful lion. After Edmond has been wounded in battle, and is getting well-deserved praise for destoying the White Witch's wand, Aslan is quoted as saying "Even I might be a statue (if Edmond had not destroyed her wand)." Aslan, as Jesus, is all-powerful and would have never been in any type of danger of falling to the witch, just as Jesus is always and forever victorious over Satan, and never at any point, was in danger of losing this eternal battle. If you're looking for a version of this story true to the gospel after which it was modeled, I'd look for a different book than the one by Hiawyn Oram.
